AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (June 10, 2014) – RGIS, LLC, the global market leader in inventory and data collection, and SES, the leader in Electronic Shelf Labeling systems (ESL) for retailers worldwide, announced a new global partnership on the first day of the FMI Connect conference in Chicago.
"Retailers are looking to move further into the digitization and automation of store operations, and the RGIS-SES partnership will accelerate the adoption of these advanced solutions," said Charles Jackson, VP Strategy & Business Development & CEO SES America. The partnership will focus on the key operational areas that omnichannel retailers need – reducing out-of-stocks (OOS), real-time product availability, and improving in-store customer experiences. Advanced functionality such as geolocation and stock picking is based on SES' new interactive ESL Graphic-Tag range.
"Both companies are the best in the industry in their core areas of expertise and serve many top-tier retailers," said JD Bouchard, SVP Canada and Global Specialty Services. He added that "It is a very logical evolution that these two companies are partnering to support the next generation of retailer needs. In addition to finding new ways to work through SmartSpace®, our state-of-the-art macro space solution, RGIS will provide professional installation services for SES's Electronic Shelf Labels to ensure rapid and efficient installation across a retailer's entire footprint."
The partnership is global in scope and extends to all segments of retail, including both grocers and non-food retailers.
